Great Airflow for the price 7/29/2020 8:26:22 AM

Overall Review: This is a great case for pure airflow. Easy to build in and the fans it comes with are great. Was able to fit a massive Sapphire Nitro rx5700xt in it with room to spare. The only problem I encountered was the front panel usb connector (see pics). The wire separated from the connector when attempting to remove it from the motherboard. It was far more difficult to remove than any other usb connector I have ever used, just be wary. Other than that this has been a fantastic case, super quiet and cool.

Bring your A game putting this together 7/4/2020 2:50:39 PM

Pros: Very clean appearance with all parts assembled
RGB is not at all garish
Accommodates tall air cooler
Seems like a 240mm AIO would not be any problem (don't have one)
Really quiet with 3 case fans, Wraith cooler and GPU at idle, not bad at full tilt either

Cons: Instruction manual competes with Ikea for obscurity
Best cable routing mandates modular power supply (but you can cram in the other kind)
There is a reason why most reviews show a setup without hard drives or the hard drive cage--not suited for those with big internal storage needs.

Overall Review: I've built a bunch of computers, usually in larger and more expensive cases but reviews of this BeQuiet intrigued me. The instruction manual is nearly useless, common to many cases, so once you start putting it together pause and think about efficient cable routing or you will never get the side panel back on; a modular power supply would be easiest to use. The case will accommodate two mechanical drives but the price is that you lose an area for wadding up excess cable. Although technically there are additional SSD mounts besides the two seen through the glass window (be careful taking it off and storing it) running cables there will be challenging.

When I pulled the case shell out of the carton I thought it would be a reverberating loud monster. I was wrong. With the three case fans, PSU, Wraith cooler and GPU at idle its quieter than a Fractal R5 sitting next to it. Of course that Fractal also has gobs of room for storage devices of every ilk.

I also thought I would probably end up disconnecting the RGB but so far I find it unobtrusive if not downright tasteful.

For the price I think this is a very good value but there are hard limits to how much storage you can realistically cram into this case.

Great concept & value, poor execution & poor customer support 7/2/2020 6:29:35 AM

Pros: -aRGB lighting via front panel and interior LED strip (mine was defective)
-USB 3.1 Gen 2 front IO connectivity
-Mesh front intake allows for excellent airflow
-Acoustic noise-dampening foam in rear of chassis
-Tempered glass side panel provides a nice aesthetic

Cons: -aRGB LED strip and SATA cable powering aRGB front panel are defective
-Paint job scratches very easily
-Glass side panel scratches easily when attaching or removing
-Metal cable management bar bends and scratches paint easily
-Poor quality control

Overall Review: I really wanted to like this case, but beQuiet! customer service has been completely unhelpful with resolving my issues after repeated email attempts to explain that my case has serious problems with some of the wiring. I spent a lot of my own time and money trying to fix the aRGB lighting in this case before I discovered multiple points of failure between the aRGB LED strip and the front IO SATA cable feeding power to the front panel lighting. Very disappointed with beQuiet! at the moment. Hopefuilly they can resolve these issues with manufacturing because this case has great potential to be a killer product, especially compared to its primary competitor, Lian Li's Lancool II.

The best case I've ever owned 6/13/2020 2:47:58 PM

Pros: - Obviously the airflow, it's one of the best performing cases on the market, while also being very quiet.
- Looks great, in my opinion. The ARGB strips on the front of the case are subtle and aren't overbearing like many of the cases on the market.
- Case feels substantial, no cheap plastics or thin metals here. Very sturdy and robust design.
- Comes included with 3 excellent case fans, has very good airflow in the stock configuration.

Cons: - Cable management is not the best, it's easy to keep everything tidy, but the 90 degree angle on the cable management/ssd mounting tray makes routing some cables very difficult or even impossible. I'm using the Lian Li Strimer Plus cables in my case, and I'm not able to run them through there at all, I had to run them through the spot in the cable management/ssd mounting tray where the 'be quiet!' logo is. It's just a plastic cover that can be removed.
- Front panel connectors are rainbow colored, seriously it's 2020 people, all cases should come with all black front panel connectors. It's not that difficult to do, and I would pay extra for the addition of them.
- The interior space is limited because this is a more compact mid-tower, so you will have to take most things apart in order to install the motherboard/power supply cables. But once the motherboard is in place, everything else is easily accessible.

Overall Review: Overall this is an excellent case at a very reasonable price. I have owned cases in the past such as the Cooler Master 690 II Advanced and the NZXT S340 Elite, and this is my favorite. It has such a clean design while also having ARGB lighting and great airflow.

Super Cool Looking Case, Would Buy Again 6/8/2020 1:38:20 AM

Pros: - Front LED bars look absolutely sick, very Tron-esque, the LED presets are solid as well
- Plenty of room for fans
- Nice big side glass panel
- Room on the backside for cables
- Tons of airflow options
- Reasonably priced

Cons: - The manual and online documentation is fairly limited, didn't know I needed an ARGB 5V LED connector on my MOBO to control the case lights (can still control them with the front button, but would be nice to use software instead so I don't have to cycle through every time), also didn't know the case lights are powered via SATA from the PSU separate from the MOBO.
- Taking off the front panel feels like you're going to break something
- Cable routing to the back is only so-so. I was able to get it clean and manageable, but could have been easier.
- BEWARE: Not much room up top for a radiator bc of RAM, you'll probably have to put your radiator on the front
- Although there is room for 3 fans on the front, if you use the bottom one there is no room for the HDD tray and you'll have to use SSD's only. No mention of this anywhere prior to purchase. Luckily I don't have an HDD but just want that to be out there

Overall Review: - Despite my cons, they were mostly just warnings. I truly love the case and think it's really tight, they were just things I wish I knew before hand. Would definitely purchase this case again.
